Good presentation of contemporay alternative politics
I suggest the Awareness party focus on a 100-year plan for New Zealand.
This would get beyond some of the myths of the money system, such as we need to "create jobs" or that we need to "increase exports." The focus should be on the health of the people. If the people would be healthier with LESS work, then that is what we should work towards. If New Zealand would do healthier with LESS EXPORTS, then that is what we should work for.
The focus on jobs and exports is "all about money." But money is not a healthy economic system. Indeed, it makes us sick, both now and in the future by polluting more than necessary and working people harder than is prudent for health.
You might say we live in a "moneyocracy" where money is ruling us rather than serving us. Imagine a society where the economic system SERVED the health of the people rather than DESTROYED the health of the people.
The Pope said recently that we have turned money into an idol and are now "worshiping money." I think he may be correct.
